On June 22, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its much-anticipated voting rights ruling in the NAMUDNO case (Northwest Austin Municipal Utility District v. Holder). Many long-time experts are sifting through the decision to understand the broad implications for the future of voting rights protections and minority representation in the United States. In addition, ongoing demographic shifts in our national mosaic are creating more situations where alternatives to single-seat districts, including proportional voting methods, may be necessary to ensure diverse representation. This is an opportune time to renew the national conversation about the future of voting rights. The New America Foundation is joining with longtime fair elections advocates FairVote to organize "The Future of the Voting Rights Act" in which some of the nation's top voting rights experts will come together to review NAMUDNO and its impacts, and think more expansively about voting rights and representation.
